Benefits of Participation Trophies Participation Trophies and Their Benefits Derek Lewis Pierpont Community and Technical College Participation Trophies and Their Benefits Participation trophies are both loved and hated. However, they are beneficial to kids in many ways. Some people do not like them because they think that they are rewarding kids for nothing. In life, structure is needed, and especially in children. It is very important that these kids get introduced to structure as soon as possible, so they can get used to have a well-rounded life.
The children have taught me how to be a better person, along with me teaching them how to grow up to be an outstanding individual. Although I have several skills due to my experience with children already, I hope to improve them. There can always be improvement with any skill, even if I think I have
One of the biggest phenomenas in today’s society is that everyone gets a reward for participating. While this idea is a good thought, it often times has a negative effect on the future of the kids. We must do our future kids a favor, and put a stop to the free trophies. This will ensure our children the best future possible. Free trophies give children the idea that participating is good enough, there isn’t a need for competition, everybody’s a winner, and it takes away the incentive to work hard.
Children who are strong feel confident when meeting new people, like to do nice things for others, are loving and lovable, and are optimistic about life and are able to stand up to peer pressure so they can avoid using drugs, drinking alcohol, and smoking (Staff). Parents fear their children having strength is horrible, but in the contrary, it is not. Give kids freedom to figure things out in their own way within the boundaries you have set; parents should walk an acceptable line between respecting a child 's need for independence and privacy
From twelve on, the children train for their job and slowly train less and work more until they become fully responsible adults. Finally, Jonas’s world is different from ours because differences are not tolerated. They have a way of dealing with differences called release.

In one group she praises them for being smart. However in the other group, she tells them they must have worked hard to do well. The difference between the fixed and growth mindset lies in those few words: smart and work hard. The students who were told they were smart did not want to tarnish that label. They rejected challenges and new
They understand the value of freedom, and giving their child a lot of independence will help them grow as a person. This kind of parenting style will help the child when they are in their adolescent years. To have a parent that understands what you want in this years will help the parent and the child. The pros and cons of having an indulgent parent is that sometime they tend to give the child too much freedom. Also, some parents who use indulgent parenting style want to be their child’s best friends.
Yes if a kid just sits there they will not pass, but even if the kid shows effort or improvement they will probably pass the class, and just like sports most kids will try during the game, which will earn them trophy. Other problem with this side of the debate is it believes participation trophies will not push the young athletes to become better, but the truth is the contrary of that belief, the truth is the trophies will cause kids to become better. As children see everyone is receiving the same treatment, they will desire to push kids to push further in the game, so they will be able to receive more awards for their efforts. Another flaw in the idea of not handing out participation trophies is kids will feel that they are not good at the sport causing them to quit,
If you spank your child they have a better outcome later in life. “Those who were physically disciplined performed better than those who weren’t in a whole series of categories, including school grades, an optimistic outlook on life, the willingness to perform volunteer work, and the ambition to attend college...” (Kettle). Children who are shown what it right from wrong at a young age have more ambition, and want to do better in life. When your child is never disciplined, the child becomes rude, and has no respect for you. It becomes hard to raise a child who has no respect for you or any other adults.
